John G. Nugent is an example of true excellence and professionalism at CBRE and in the industry at large. During his 37+ years with CBRE, John has been unfailingly consistent in his leadership across production, client service and corporate citizenship.

A Vice Chairman with the firm since 2006, John has built his career around advising Fortune 500 companies, law firms, financial institutions and professional services firms. He has been included in the prestigious Colbert Coldwell Circle (Top 100 Global Producing Professionals) over20 times during his career and, in 2000, he was CBRE’s number one leasing broker in the nation.

John’s market knowledge is anchored in New York and extends to cities across the country and globe, fueled by firms with multi-market portfolios and fast-growing organizations with expansion plans. As their needs evolve, John’s strong relationships keep him central and vital to the process. In fact, many of those relationships had simple beginnings. His uncanny ability to “find a real estate problem to fix” creates a proving ground for performance. And his willingness to meet the challenge sets the stage for being seen as a go-to for clients.

His achievements as a sales professional are complemented by his significant contribution to corporate leadership. In May 2005, John was selected to serve on the CBRE Board of Directors, and as Chairman of the America’s President Advisory Council.

John’s work ethic is not only recognized by his clients, but also acknowledged by CBRE. In 2006, John received CBRE’s highest professional honor, the William H. McCarthy Award, recognizing the individual who most exemplifies professional excellence, integrity, service and teamwork. Even more distinctive, John was the first Tri-State professional to be honored with this award.
